Bulldogs pounce on Buffaloes 34-0 in district opener

STANTON – Football is a funny sport where the best team does not always win. Last Friday the Stanton Buffaloes failed to play to their potential and lost 34- 0 to district rival Coahoma, which played excessively well, in the district opener for both teams. The fast start for the Bulldogs almost guarantees them a playoff spot while Stanton is still on the outside looking in.

For whatever reason, Stanton never seemed to get off the bus. The lack of life and energy is not a characteristic the Buffaloes have displayed this season. Usually, Stanton is full of fight and doesn’t stop until the referee blows the final whistle.

Bucks devastate Buffs with 54-0 performance

ALPINE – Alpine took full advantage of the Stanton Buffaloes on Friday defending home field with a 54-0 non-district victory.

Stanton was hoping for a better performance in the final non-district game on the schedule, but injuries and shifting rosters put both the coaching staff and players into uncharted waters. One good takeaway from the game is that the entire team became more experience when facing adversity.

Grady fails to slow Westbrook offense

GRADY - In their previous meeting, Westbrook delivered Grady a punishing 56 - 28 defeat. This time around was unfortunately more of the same. The final score between Westbrook and Grady on Friday night was 66 - 31 in Westbrook’s favor.

Westbrook’s offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 40 points in the first half and building a 40 - 16 advantage. Its success only continued in the second half, where it racked up an additional 26 points.

Despite Grady’s defeat, the squad still enjoyed a top-notch performance from junior Marshall Cox, who earned two touchdowns and 140 yards rushing the ball and had one touchdown and 18 yards receiving.

Red Devils too strong for Wildcats, 65-0

RANKIN – The Grady Wildcat’s struggles continued last week with a 65-0 loss to the Rankin Red Devils in a non-district road game at Red Devil Stadium.

Grady’s offense tried its best to keep pace with the Devil’s scoring machine but was stopped short at every turn and only managed 51 yards of total offense. The Wildcat’s defense also tried mightily to slow the Devil’s high octane offense but no answered could be found as Rankin rolled in the victory.

Christoval could be the chance to turn season around

STANTON – It hasn’t been the start the Stanton Buffaloes were hoping for as the Forsan Buffaloes handed Stanton its third loss of the young season with a 44-14 performance in Stanton last Friday.

Stanton seemed to improve this past week with its turnover and penalty struggles as the Buffs only had two turnovers and three penalties. The two areas that continue to hamper the Buffs are the offense, and not just the offensive line, picking up and maintaining blocks and the defense being able to get off blocks and continue to big play.
